Haddo is fishing well, but is not easy :cool:

CDC Emergers, Dry Black Spiders, Hares Ear Emergers, Claret Hoppers, Crunchers, Buzzers, Invicta, Hares Ear Nymph, Bibio, Spiders, Black Nymphs, Black Pennell, Pearly Pennell and Bloodworm have all been on the menu. There have been some great hatches at times and there are a lot of hawthorns and alders in the air.

Alex Burnett enjoyed a great session with 23 Brownies up to 2.5 lb and netted 14 up to 3 lb on a second visit, Barry Strichen tempted 12 up to 2 lb, Alan Barker had 11 up to 2 lb, Michael Troup 8 up to 1.5 lb, Colin Shand 7 up to 3 lb, Ian Brown 7 up to 3 lb and Alan Gourlay netted the best trout of the week with 4 fish up to 6 lb.

First time fly fisher Angus Hunter was learning the ropes with Steven Kidd and caught two nice fish of approx 1.5 lb ...... Well done!

Best wishes

( Posted elsewhere on the forum, but probably a good idea to repeat this here )

It is a couple of months now since I put the fishery up for sale and the only serious interest has been from folk wishing to set up syndicates. I would prefer this not to happen if possible, as I know there are many Haddo regulars who would miss being able to fish the loch :z6

So I have had a bit of a rethink ..... and Haddo is now open daily from 9.30 to 5.30 ( by advance booking only ) and with a fishing permit price of 20 per angler.

I have updated the website information, please see: http://fishingthefly.co.uk/haddo-trout-fishery.html

Twas me, recently started fly fishing again and visited Haddo twice in 2 weeks. A lovely place to fish, and only a 25 minute drive where I live in Balmedie.

First visit I caught ten on a Hares Ear Nympth, very hot and difficult but a great day.

Second visit was a half day and caught 4 with one trout at around the 5-6lb mark, caught on a claret hopper dry fly.

Planning another visit at the end of the month.
